Horror stories are designed to evoke fear, fascination, or revulsion in the reader. This is done either through supernatural elements or psychological circumstances. Sometimes horror is also considered dark fantasy because the laws of nature must be violated in some way, qualifying the story as fantastic.
Werewolves, vampires, zombies, ghosts, and monsters are common in horror stories, as well as people who are considered crazy and are bent on the harm of others. Horror stories feed on basic human emotions, eliciting sympathy and dread whenever possible. The stories contain higher rates of death and torture than most other genres.
